Round Up! | Student Blogs From Around The World (2)

Some of you may have noticed a new link in our blogroll -

year 6A 2010…for reading, writing, thinking and sharing

I thought this link might interest you because much of what this Australian class is doing (and thinking about) seems be in sync with what we’re doing (and thinking about). For example, just as we’ve been thinking about the keys to success in high school in terms of knowledge, skills and competencies, Mr. Rogers’ students have been thinking about similar ideas through a program  called “Habits of Mind”. In both cases, what we’re doing comes under the category of metacognition – “thinking about thinking” and “knowing about knowing”. And that is the key to long term success.

Later this week – once you’ve finished updating your own blog pages - I’d like you to visit some of the Year 6A 2010 student blogs. You’ll notice that their blogs have a focus that  is quite different from that of the blogs that we’ve been visiting so far. Please let me know what you think about these differences and what you think we might be able to emulate in our own blogs.
